George T. Stagg Bourbon (Fall 2018)

Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

4.5 out of 5 stars
Deep amber color. Nose has intense cinnamon, vanilla and maraschino cherries, with oak and notes of sweet tea. Thick, oily mouthfeel, followed by fireworks going off in your mouth. Palate is a continuation of the nose with lots of cinnamon, vanilla, cherry cola, buttery toffee, and hints of sweet tobacco and oak char. Long, hot finish with more cinnamon and vanilla, lots of spicy oak and black pepper, and subtle hints of coffee and campfire. This is a very good bourbon that has all the notes you would expect in a very good bourbon. If anything sets it apart, it would be the intensity with which you find those characteristics. Everything seems concentrated. Not worth the price I paid, but it was a birthday treat for myself, so no regrets.
